Produced by the Spencer Rifle Company of Boston, Massachusetts, this ten-pound Civil War Model 1860 Spencer breechloading repeating carbine is in very good original condition. Carbine, which fired the .52 caliber, No. 56 Spencer rimfire cartridge, has a 22” long barrel fitted to a two-piece black walnut stock.

Barrel wears a dark gray mottled color. Has the large folding rear sight but is missing the cross-bar. The brass “blade” front sight is intact at the muzzle. Dark coloring on the receiver, hammer and lockplate.  Bore has original six-groove rifling that is clean and sharp. All wood has original finish with deep walnut color with only a few scratches from use. Top flat of the receiver, forward of the hammer, is stamped with “SPENCER REPEATING / RIFLE Co. BOSTON MASS / PAT’D. MARCH 6, 1860” but is light with heavy wear. Serial #44937 is located at the top rear of the receiver near the hammer.

Original, heavy, regular Spencer sling bar and sling ring are tightly secured to the left side of stock. Retains the single swivel near the stock toe. Carbine frame screws are original with no buggering. All metal surfaces of the carbine exhibit just scattered oxidation spots. Iron butt plate is dark with some pitting. Cartridge tube and spring are original and in strong condition. Mechanics are crisp. A pleasing classic original Civil War M1860 Spencer carbine.   [jet]
